Great sound for a 4-track. The more industrial this track gets (near the end) the more I like it! Reminds me more of Primus than of Jane's, but my holes/ears are warped from too much demoing.

This is one of the first songs that really defined the concept that you are doing to this day. Those 22k samples almost work in the analog tape world... A bit too much processing on vocals but then again look at Jane's Addiction their principle instrument is a multi effects rack unit and they made it... maybe the world is ready for a hetero Jane's without track marks and dirt under the fingernails...
